Developing a liquid aspirin has proven to be very complex due to aspirin’s insolubility in water and its very unstable nature, causing rapid degradation in most solvents. Soluble aspirins currently on the market are in fact dispersible and therefore still contain grains that sit on the gastric mucosa causing gastric side effects. The categorization as “soluble” is therefore a misnomer. More recent products are just powders that quickly disperse in water or powdered aspirin salts. No truly shelf stable acetylsalicylic acid has therefore ever been successfully produced, until now.
